"Supported by the ongoing generosity of our sangha, we have the good fortune to begin construction in the spring of 2014 on our lower campus for a permanent Community Hall and support buildings. Our upper campus, where your residential retreat occurs, is not part of the construction.
While some ambient machinery sound may travel, it will not be continuous or nearby. Construction will take place during business work hours (Monday - Friday, 7:00am - 4:00pm) and on some Saturdays. Spirit Rock will be open throughout construction. Conditions for meditation practice are rarely perfect and environmental sounds are just another subject for our mindful attention. Teachers will give guidance on how to use it as a basis for your practice. Thank you for supporting our efforts and continuing your practicing at Spirit Rock during this time. We look forward to supporting you on retreat."
~ Spirit Rock Teachers Council RETREAT INFORMATION
Join us for a meditation retreat with the support of our community. We will practice in silence being present with the truth of our experience through sitting meditation, walking meditation, eating meditation, and spending time in nature. Support will be provided through dharma talks, meetings with teachers, and time for questions about your practice.
Through developing our ability to see clearly with kindness and compassion, we can see through fears and illusions that hold us back and we can learn to bear witness to the unique beauty of our lives as LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex) people. Welcome for all levels of meditation experience.
Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $25 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
